The Road finally arrives in Birmingham

Katie and I have waited SO patiently for this movie since its November 2009 release and it is FINALLY here!

Based upon Cormac McCarthy's novel of the same title, The Road is a post-apocalyptic dramatic thriller about a father and his son walking alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food -- and each other ( synopsis).

I doubt this movie will have a very long theater shelf life so if you're interested in seeing it on the big screen, better see it now!

Cormac McCarthy is the author of ten novels:
Outer Dark (in production)
Blood Meridian (in production)
Cities of the Plain (in production)
The Road - film adaptation is at the Rave Theater at Lee Branch now!
